Big-match changes in 19-man squad

SCOTT Naylor has made three enforced changes in his 19-man squad for tomorrow’s big clash with Hull KR in the Ladbrokes Challenge Cup fifth round tie at Bower Fold, Stalybridge (3pm kick-off).

Out go Kieran Gill (knee cap), Adam Neal (head knock) and dual-reg Daniel Murray (unavailable) and into the 19 step Jack Holmes, Adam Jones and Matty Wilkinson.

The squad includes on-loan Wakefield Trinity teenagers Luke Hooley (19) and Lee Kershaw (18), a winger who scored two tries on debut against Keighley Cougars last week and would have completed a hat-trick if he had grounded the ball correctly after a length-of-the-field interception.

Squad: Bent, Bridge, Briscoe, Crook. Eccleston, Hewitt, Holmes, Hooley, Hughes, Jones, Joy, Kershaw, Langtree, McComb, Nelmes, Owen, Reid, Spencer, Wilkinson.

Former Great Britain centre star Garry Schofield has picked out the Oldham v Hull KR and York City Knights v Catalans Dragons ties as potential upsets.

Of the Roughyeds 17 that won 36-22 at the same stage of the same competition at Craven Park two years ago only Phil Joy, Gareth Owen, Jack Spencer, Danny Langtree and Kenny Hughes are still at the club.

In the Championship last year Rovers won 48-0 at Craven Park, but squeezed home with a narrow 32-24 winning margin at Bower Fold after Roughyeds had stormed into an early 18-0 lead.

AS lockdown restrictions start to ease, now is the time for everyone connected with Oldham RLFC to do all they can to help with getting income from our Club Cash lottery back to where it was before the pandemic started to bite.

This is vital for the club and its finances which, as you all know, have taken a massive hit in the past 12 months.

Collectors will be returning to door-to-door visits in the next few weeks and we hope people who suspended payments will pick up where they left off as we strive and work hard to get back to where we were before the pandemic caused us to lose 50 per cent of our lottery income.

Many of our regular punters, who would normally pay a collector, have answered our calls for help by finding other ways to pay and to retain their chances of winning prizes.

To those people we are very grateful and we would like to take this opportunity to thank them once again for their loyal and continued support.

The lottery, of course, is potentially one of our biggest fund-raisers and for as little as £1 a week — more if you wish — you can help the club immensely and at the same time have chances to win £1,000, £100, £50, £25 or one of ten consolation prizes of £10.

That’s the present prize structure. There’s every chance it will be increased once we are out of lockdown, door-to-door collections start again and we get back to some sort of normality.

In the meantime you can join, or start up again, by contacting the club on 07904 898177 or by email to: enquiries@roughyeds.co.uk

For more information about the lottery, and for the “great opportunities” provided by our partnership with the National Youth and Community Development Association (NYCDA) go our Club Cash page.

There, you will find all the results and a detailed statement about getting back to normal with the help of our not-for-profit partners.

All proceeds from the partnership will continue to support the club and help us to meet the aims of our Club Cash activities, particularly in its aims and objectives to be an active stakeholder in the local community.
